     I laid turf in a small garden a bout six weeks ago and what with all the rian we have had it looks good and is growing well.  However, I have no idea how well its establishing itself into the soil I laid it on.

    Could someone please advise me how long I should leave it before I give it a trim.

    A mild day (probably after mid march) When the grass is growing. After the turf has dried out somewhat and feels reasonable firm underfoot. Certainly not when soggy. Nor when frost is forecasted. Don't be in too much of a hurry! Good Luck!
